Thin skin - histology slide

This is a histology slide of thin skin. At low power, the skin is covered by a narrow layer of epidermis. The papillary dermis is compact and can be distinguished from the looser reticular dermis. Hair follicles and fat tissue are seen deep in the section. Hairs appear as golden ovoid structures surrounded by layers of squamous epithelium.
